I've had a couple of ideas for the new live brief project, the brief that has inspired the most ideas however has been the D&AD Diesel brief for an innovative illustrated music track. I love buying physical CDs, not just mp3s, there is something about a wonderfully illustrated and beautifully textured album booklet, what i want to aim for, is special edition album artwork that will make buying CDs into an experience.
I have a few ideas on what the final product is going to encompass, the best so far is a series of products that each illustrate an individual track from an album, sold as an album with the CD and lyrics... but thats the furthest I've got yet. I guess I'm trying to reinvent the Beck's art labels for their beer bottles, but on a bigger scale.
Music wise I'm thinking either:
Deftones, Diamond Eyes or Saturday Night Wrist
Fever Ray, Fever Ray
Bleeding Through, The Truth
Hole, Live Through This.
